    Drosera do well in a 1:1 peat/sand mix....i dont know anything about Pinguicula seed growing, so you'll need someone else to chime in.

    There are many different groups of Drosera and Pinguicula, that each require somewhat different germinating/growing conditions. I recommend contacting your seed source for recommendations/cultivation information, then ask questions about each specific species of seed that you intend to germinate/cultivate. CP can be very exacting/demanding in the conditions necessary for successful germination and subsequent growth to maturity.

    To my very untrained eye, I would say that it is a flower on the way! If not, we are both seeing things!

    You are a beginner with CP seeds, are you?

    The hardy Pinguicula from France/Europe should germinate better after a previous cold stratification (perhaps ask the vendor about cold stratification needs).

    The Pincuicula substrate should contain a small amount of certain limestone and vermiculite, while Drosera species are germinating well in pure peat or mixes of peat with pure silica sand and/or perlite.

    If you are not sure, get some extended information before sowing!

    If you have enough seeds in each packet, you can split each portion and sow each half-portion under slightly differing germination conditions (you can modify date of sowing, lighting, substrate mix, temperatures, humidity).

    Good luck!

    Yes, it seems that your Pinguicula may be forming a flower bud. Though its growing conditions appear to be substandard for the plant.
